  1. A lovely read, and a very elegant solution.
  2. HA HA HA HA. Love it, especially the waste basket.
  3. Very inspiring. I've always admired the flugelhorn, but they barely exist here in the States. I was a trumpet player: on the first day of seventh grade a trumpet was shoved into my hands by our junior high school music director as he said "Here, this is your instrument." "No, no, no!" I protested, but to no avail. My dreams of becoming a drummer like Gene Krupa were derailed and I wheezed and puffed and generated a lot of spit throughout my school career with an instrument I worked hard to tolerate and never mastered.
  4. Unh oh. Are they, perhaps, the Flying Monkeys of OZ? Shiver.
  5. Nigel, much of the eggnog sold in grocery stores here is flavored with fake rum flavoring, since most everybody is aware that true eggnog is booze-based. A lot of that store-bought eggnog is topped up with spirits once it arrives in the home.
  6. Followed up on Dude's post below and found this. Jack the Drummer, age 8. Woah.
  7. Hugh Jackman is listed as former Uppingham Physical Education teacher (1987) before he moved on. I love Wiki footnotes!
  8. 21. Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage is another matter.
  9. At my age, every experience is an avant-garde experience.

  11. I'm in for the long haul. Three characters, each already vying to be my favorite.

    Now I see why all we get over here is your damned baking shows.
